The Israeli army said on the X website (formerly Twitter) that “a fighter jet recently attacked firing platforms from Syrian territory towards Israeli territory yesterday evening.”
A few hours ago, it reported several rocket attacks in an “open area.”
According to the Israeli Kan public radio, the sites that were struck are located in the Daraa region in southern Syria and are linked to Iran’s allies.
Since October 7, the date of Hamas’ bloody attack on Israel, the Israeli Air Force has launched several raids in Syria, particularly targeting Aleppo and Damascus airports.
Tensions are also rising on the Israeli-Lebanese border, where fire is exchanged almost daily between the Israeli army and pro-Palestinian armed groups, including Lebanese Hezbollah.
Hezbollah, an ally of the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas), announced on Sunday that it had shot down an Israeli drone over Israeli territory with a surface-to-air missile, and announced that one of its fighters had been killed.
For its part, the Israeli army reported new fire coming from Lebanon towards the Har Dov and Kiryat Shmona area and said it responded.
Israel has launched hundreds of air strikes on Syrian territory since the start of the war there in 2011.
Its air forces particularly targeted Iranian-backed forces and Lebanese Hezbollah, as well as the Syrian army.
